Journal of International Development, 2021, vol. 33, issue 2, 277-315
As the widespread pessimism about African agriculture has receded, policies for a green revolution in Africa are again called for. This study explores the presence of a national‐level green revolution in Ethiopia and finds that an Ethiopian green revolution has taken place since the mid‐1990s, mainly among staple‐growing smallholders in agroecologically favourable areas and that the state has played a central role in this transformation via public spending on agriculture. It concludes that there is scope for states in today's low‐income countries to take a leading role in the transformation of their agricultural sectors.
